May 2020 was full of events that have been anticipated for a while in the cryptocurrency industry. First of all, the Bitcoin blockchain has experienced its third block reward halving. This event happens every four years (or 210,000 blocks) on the BTC chain, and the last two were in 2012 and 2016. The third halving cut the reward in half as usual. Bitcoin miners now get 6.25 BTC per block rather than the 12.5 BTC they acquired before. The halving and subsequent discussions regarding the BTC price were so important for us because BTC is not only the biggest asset on the market, but one of the most popular cryptos among Freewallet users.
Secondly, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), has confirmed that there is no longer any banking ban on crypto companies. This decision was significant for Indian crypto users and the whole Freewallet community because Indians constitute our third largest clientele group by country.

Freewallet in Reviews and Rankings

Freewallet has been called a crypto Swiss Army Knife, delivering on its mission to make crypto wallets available to a wide range of crypto community members, regardless of experience level. We provide users with a universal platform to buy, sell, store, and manage crypto, and that’s why media outlets have shown a sustained interest in reviewing Freewallet features and functions.

“Recently Freewallet together with Changelly has implemented new exchange technology for a list of 54 coins and ERC20 tokens, including BTC, ETH, EOS, and LTC. This type of exchange can be executed in 2-3 minutes and characterized by better rates and enhanced anonymity. Additionally, users can make transfers with other Freewallet members absolutely free of charge.” – said

Here is a small overview of the media publications that have featured us in reviews and rankings:

New Crypto-Geography series

Solomon Brown, our Head of PR and crypto expert, e-traveled to the promised land of football, carnivals and telenovelas. His latest Crypto Geography article was dedicated to Brazil. This country demonstrates contradictory attitudes towards cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. On one side, the Government has improved crypto control: investment funds are now banned from buying cryptocurrencies, and banks block the accounts of cryptocurrency companies and crypto owners. Nevertheless, Brazil is actively integrating blockchain technology into its infrastructure and economy.

“In early September 2019, the first birth certificates were issued exclusively through blockchain technology without having to go through registration in the registry office. The Brazilian Ministry of Education has proposed the creation of a blockchain platform for the issuance of digital certificates of education among non-state universities in order to combat the falsification of diplomas” – said Solomon in his new Crypto Geography article. | Brazil Is for Blockchain but Against Crypto
